My old next door neighbor in college was from the part of North Dakota that is in the arctic circle. He used to come over barefooted when it was snowing and ride his bike in crazy cold temperatures wearing a t-shirt and jeans.
I have also seen him ride with no helmet (illegal in NC), and just shorts with a pistol stuck in his pocket. No shirt, no shoes. He had a good excuse. His bike had been stolen two weeks earlier and he had gotten a new one. He saw his old bike ride by and tried to catch the guy. Luckily he got away. I am pretty certain that would have ended really badly if my buddy had found him. I know he didn't really want to shoot anyone, but bad things happen when you have a hurt dog cornered.
